Fire breaks out at Sungei Kadut warehouse
SINGAPORE: A fire broke out at a warehouse at 65 Sungei Kadut Loop on Tuesday (Oct 17) morning, the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said in a Facebook post.
The SCDF said it was alerted to the blaze at 1.30am and sent three fire engines, two Red Rhinos, eight support vehicles, an unmanned firefighting machine and an ambulance to the scene.
Upon arrival, the third floor of the three-storey building was ablaze, said SCDF. The fire was extinguished at 3.30am and there were no injuries, SCDF added in their Facebook post.
The Building and Construction Authority (BCA) said that the fire damaged the third storey of the building, exposing the reinforcement bars of the roof slab above it. The fire did not affect the structural integrity of adjacent buildings.
The building's owner has to order a detailed investigation by a professional engineer and recommend permanent rectifications to the damage sustained, which have to be approved by BCA.
"In the interest of public safety, the building will remain closed until the rectifications are completed," BCA said.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
